Empires : de la Chine ancienne à nos jours by Jane Burbank( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les empires, ces vastes États composés de territoires et de peuples assemblés par la force et l'ambition, ont dominé le paysage politique depuis plus de deux mille ans. Entamant leur histoire par la Chine et la Rome anciennes, la poursuivant avec l'Asie, l'Europe, les Amériques et l'Afrique, Burbank et Cooper étudient les conquêtes, les rivalités, les stratégies de domination, éclairant tout particulièrement la manière dont les empires s'adaptent aux différences entre les peuples, les créent ou les manipulent. Ils expliquent aussi le monothéisme militant de Byzance, les califats islamiques, les Carolingiens, mais aussi les lois tolérantes et pragmatiques des Mongols et des Ottomans, qui combinèrent protection religieuse et loyauté des sujets. Ils discutent enfin, notamment, la question de l'influence des empires sur le capitalisme et la souveraineté populaire, ou encore les limites et l'instabilité des projets coloniaux européens."--Page 4 of cover

2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: Qu’est-ce que le colonialisme et comment peut-on en écrire l’histoire ? Pourquoi les études coloniales suscitent-elles un regain d’intérêt depuis les années 1980 ? Comment des concepts tels que « identité », « globalisation » et « modernité » sont-ils utilisés par les historiens ? Qu’est-ce que l’empire colonial et quel imaginaire véhicule-t-il ? L’histoire coloniale peut-elle se réduire à la domination et à l’oppression ? Un livre essentiel, fécond, d’une très grande portée intellectuelle et déjà reconnu comme une référence incontournable
Quoi de neuf? du rôle des techniques dans l'histoire globale by David Edgerton( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voici un essai capital sur les rapports entre technique et société. Cette histoire globale de la technologie moderne prend le contre-pied du récit habituel centré sur les inventions de quelques individus géniaux pour mettre au premier plan l'analyse des usages collectifs. David Edgerton est ainsi amené à réévaluer profondément le rôle des technologies dans la société. Bien au-delà de la liste usuelle des innovations modernes couramment tenues pour avoir transformé notre existence - la pilule, l'informatique, la bombe atomique, l'aviation -, il faut prendre en compte une grande variété de technologies moins visibles mais non moins importantes, venant de diverses parties du monde ...

Repenser le colonialisme by Ann Laura Stoler( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2020 in French and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: Ce texte a bouleversé la façon de penser le colonialisme. Plutôt que de raconter les colonisations d'un seul point de vue (celui de la métropole ou celui de la colonie devenue indépendante), Ann Laura Stoler et Frederick Cooper proposent en effet de les englober dans une histoire des empires qui permet d'étudier ensemble, dans leurs interactions réciproques, les dominants et les dominés. Les colonies n'étaient pas des espaces vierges qu'il suffisait de modeler à l'image de l'Europe ou d'exploiter selon ses intérêts ou ses désirs ; et les Etats européens n'étaient pas des entités autonomes qui, à un moment de leur histoire, se sont projetés outre-mer. Les unes et les autres se sont mutuellement construits. Un livre capital pour tous ceux que passionnent les sociétés coloniales

4 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pourquoi l'Afrique occupe-t-elle une place cruciale dans l'histoire mondiale ? Que voulurent réellement les Africains aux différents moments de leur histoire ? Quelles furent leurs résistances à la colonisation et au capitalisme, mais aussi leurs adaptations ? L'Etat- nation était-il la seule solution quand vint le temps de l'indépendance ? Avec cette fresque de l'Afrique, de ses connexions et de ses interactions avec les autres puissances depuis le XVe siècle jusqu'à nos jours, Frederick Cooper offre une réflexion passionnante sur la fin des grands empires coloniaux européens qui se lit également comme une histoire du monde. -- 4ème de couverture

Citizenship between empire and nation : remaking France and French Africa, 1945-1960 by Frederick Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the French public debates its present diversity and its colonial past, few remember that between 1946 and 1960 the inhabitants of French colonies possessed the rights of French citizens. Moreover, they did not have to conform to the French civil code that regulated marriage and inheritance. One could, in principle, be a citizen and different too. Citizenship between Empire and Nation examines momentous changes in notions of citizenship, sovereignty, nation, state, and empire in a time of acute uncertainty about the future of a world that had earlier been divided into colonial empires. Frederick Cooper explains how African political leaders at the end of World War II strove to abolish the entrenched distinction between colonial "subject" and "citizen." They then used their new status to claim social, economic, and political equality with other French citizens, in the face of resistance from defenders of a colonial order. Africans balanced their quest for equality with a desire to express an African political personality. They hoped to combine a degree of autonomy with participation in a larger, Franco-African ensemble. French leaders, trying to hold on to a large French polity, debated how much autonomy and how much equality they could concede. Both sides looked to versions of federalism as alternatives to empire and the nation-state. The French government had to confront the high costs of an empire of citizens, while Africans could not agree with French leaders or among themselves on how to balance their contradictory imperatives. Cooper shows how both France and its former colonies backed into more "national" conceptions of the state than either had sought

Africa since 1940 : the past of the present by Frederick Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederick Cooper's latest book on the history of decolonization and independence in Africa initiates a new textbook series: New Approaches to African History. His book will help readers understand the historical processes which have shaped Africa's current position in the world. Covering the last half-century, it bridges the divide between colonial and post-colonial history, allowing readers to see just what political independence did and did not signify. The book follows the "development question" across time, seeing how first colonial regimes and then African governments sought to transform African societies in their own ways. Readers will see how men and women, peasants and workers, religious leaders and local leaders found space within the crevices of state power to refashion the way they lived, worked, and interacted with each other. And they will see that the effort to turn colonial territories into independent nation-states was only one of the ways in which radical political and social movements imagined their future and how deeply the claims of such movements continued to challenge states after independence. By looking at the post-war era as a whole, one can begin to understand the succession of crises that colonial and post-colonial states faced without getting into a sterile debate over whether a colonial "legacy" or the failings of African governments are the cause of Africa's current situation."--Jacket
